XimedicaDX President Tracy MacNeal Moderates Panel at AdvaMed Digital MedTech Conference
Ximedica recently sponsored the second annual AdvaMed Digital MedTech Conference in San Francisco, April 24 – 25. Additionally, XimedicaDx President Tracy MacNeal moderated a panel, “Building the Health Care Brain Trust: How digital platforms can support breakthrough treatment for chronic disease.” Panelists included Ximedica’s Director of Digital Products Marco Flavio Marinucci, Glooko’s Executive VP Rick Altinger, and Empatica’s CEO Matteo Lai.
During the panel, participants discussed the ways in which a digital platform can give health care professionals deeper insights into chronic conditions like diabetes, epilepsy, and heart disease, and also help patients manage them more effectively. Panelists explored how improving a patient’s outcome can be achieved by pooling data from medical devices, treatment regimens, and patient visits. They also discussed challenges associated with building a platform to support the health care brain trust, and examined how we can aggregate and filter chronic disease data. Attendees were left with a better understanding of how we can leverage what we learn to improve outcomes for all chronic disease patients.
Thank you to AdvaMed for allowing Ximedica to be a part of such an important conversation surrounding the future of a digital world, and thank you to all who participated!
